Daisy takes you between Heaven and Hell

From writer and illustrator Colin Lorimer, one of graphic fiction’s emerging unique creative voices, and colorist Joana Lafuente and letterer Jim Campbell comes Daisy, a tale both horrific and beautiful.     

A desperate mother’s five-year search for her missing son leads her to the small town of Brimount and to the mysterious Phillips family. Daisy Phillips, like many teenagers, has a hard time fitting in, but not for the usual reasons. Daisy stands eight-and-a-half feet tall and is still growing, but her troubles with ill health, daily ridicule, and custom-made clothing are only the tip of the iceberg. Daisy may well be descended from a race of cannibalistic giants spawned from the outcasts of Heaven!

Says Lorimer about the project, “I’m delighted to be back at Dark Horse Comics! Their logo attached to Daisy gives it the ‘horror’ seal of approval.”

Daisy #1 (of five) will be in comic shops on December 8, 2021.

In the 21st Century, the global currency is no longer oil or gold but information. And he who possesses it possesses the world. There is one place on the planet where the most valuable information is mined, a place that prides itself on ‘mental fracking’, promising to extract any secret from any individual using any means possible.

It is perhaps the intelligence community’s darkest secret, aligned to no one political system or state, an autonomous institute, free of state manipulation. The identity of its controller, the mysterious Number One, is unknown. It is a place so secret, some believe it to be a myth. It is The Village.

Titan to Publish Lost Jack Kirby and Gil Kane Prisoner Comic
